    I'd like to do some rooting, but the tutorial in the sticky doesn't work (I get to the HBOOT part and the drivers don't install at all). Any ideas here? I've read something about a method that involves messing with the SD card, but I'm REALLY not sure I'm confident enough for that.

    Help?

    Those are all obsolete. Just use Unrevoked's rooting tool after installing their own drivers (from their site) And then the tool takes care of the rest. You just sit back and watch.

    What? I'm a little perplexed right now. "Their own drivers"? And does that mean I don't need to boot into recovery mode?

    EDIT: that's the thing. I can't install the HBOOT drivers. When it says I should have an "Android 1.0" device in the manager, I don't. I have two "Base System Device" entries, and my computer tells me it didn't install correctly.

    FURTHER UPDATE: Nevermind. I'm a moron. It showed up as "Android Device" in my Device Manager, not "Other". So it looks like I'm in business. Here we go...
